Mondo, in association with Masterworks and Bend Studios, is proud to present Nathan Whiteheads score to the Playstation game DAYS GONE.
Nathan Whitehead's beautiful, meditative yet occasionally terrifying score to DAYS GONE is one of our favorite pieces of video game music of 2019. A tragic slice of Americana, thrilling adventure, mixed with traditional horror elements. It is equal parts pulse pounding, heartbreaking and horrifying at the same time.
Featuring original artwork by Oliver Barrett, and pressed on 2X 180 Gram colored vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl) and four original songs performed by Jack Savoretti, Billy Raffoul, Lewis Capaldi, and Zander Reese.
